Win a Care Package for Your Pet

Congratulations to JJ and Adrienne for winning their respective cat and dog each a fantastic care package! And thanks to all of you who submitted a response; you gave us lots of ideas for our own pampered pooches and crafty kitties. Does your dog or cat have a favorite treat? We want to know what it is! Carrots, apples, liverwurst…whatever it is, we want to hear about it. We’re giving away two care packages of healthy treats — one to a randomly selected dog owner and the other to a randomly selected cat owner — just enter your pet’s favorite healthy treat as a comment below by July 21st! What’s that…your pet’s favorites aren’t healthy? Well, we won’t disqualify you. Your pet may need the care package more than others! Tell us what treats they eat now, healthy or not. A little over a year ago, I got a puppy. The week before I picked him up, I researched training treats like crazy. I wanted to make sure he started his life off healthy (and obediently) with treats that were free of byproducts and artificial stuff. Once I got him home, I discovered that not only did he LOVE the treats I’d settled on, but he also LOVED frozen broccoli florets. Nothing beats a refreshing frozen broccoli floret on a hot summer day! What’s your pet’s favorite healthy treat? Enter your comment below by July 21 and you just might win a care package for your pet. Note: The winning pet care packages will be created with an array of these products.

my 2 dauchshunds only eat organic - ground turkey, chicken, sweet potatoes, millet, carrots, apples. (all bought from Whole foods, of course) I also give them Organix treats and food sometimes.

Kara Forbis says …

My dog Dixie, a golden retriever, loves anything my toddler throws on the grown. Veggies, pizza, chicken nuggets. They both love any fish we buy at Whole Foods, though!

My cat Goose adores raw tuna. When I bring home sushi-grade Ahi to make homemade sushi rolls, she always gets a cut to nibble on. She adores it - spoiled baby!

My american bulldogs both LOVE my homemade salmon treats with cheese and wheat flour. So much so that they both get spit bubbles forming on either side of their jowls when I make them or they smell them!!!

Our Polish Lowland Sheepdog, Hrabina, loves Kielbasa, and starts circling the kitchen when I begin cooking it. She also loves a Milk Bone, which we have to call Enob Klim, so she doesn't become too excited.

My Siamese cats, Heinz and KeKe, love to lick on the rind of watermelon.

Laura Emerson says …

Our dog Zeus was abandoned and sent to the shelter where we were lucky enough to find him. They said that he had strange taste buds and they were so right. For some reason he loves lettuce with shredded carrot rolled up in a piece of bread. When he sees this his tail wags a mile a minute and he actually starts drooling.

Auriette says …

Our youngest, Petra, will steal chocolate if she can get her paws on it. We have to be really careful with her! Everyone like Pounce hairball treats. Well, everyone except Trickster. We hid a pill in one once and he's never forgotten it. We keep Temptations hairball treats around for him. They also like Catsip and Whisker Lickens treats. We try to keep a variety around.

kate says …

Piper goes nuts over bananas! As soon as she he hears me peal one for my morning oatmeal, she stands in prefect pup posture until she gets a slice!

trixx says …

My cats love tuna as a special treat. One of my cats however loves potato chips far more than anything else. Anytime I open a bag, she will appear out of thin air. Haha :D

My feline family members absolutely love cool, clear, clean water - it's soooo good for them, too.

Carol says …

My Siberian husky, Foxy Lady, absolutely loves cheese. She hears me making lunches and is right by my side hoping for a tidbit. Talk about "The Power of Cheese"!

barbara says …

Darlene Krawczyk says …

Jacks, my dog, is so spoiled that I make him liver jerky treats using a dehydrator.

Michelane says …

My dachshunds love the Nutro Berries and Apples treats. They smell just like fresh berries and apples! They also love almonds!

Shannon says …

Bella has a voracious appetite when it comes to healthy food. I have gotten her to try just about all of my vegan entrees and she hasn't put her nose up to a single thing. So far I think her favorite treat would definitely have to be her own tomato, red onion, cucumber and kidney bean salad; she licks the olive oil and lemon juice from her bowl with a tenacity to be admired.

nancy munson says …

My dog Baya loves to carrot sticks and ice cubes. My Cat, however, only likes her cat food.

claire says …

one of my cats love brussell sprouts... the other will eat just about anything & the third is so picky & I'm not sure she likes anything.

KarenP says …

My dogs favorite treats are loaves of bread (never leave them out), and she loves apples and ice-cream.

jac says …

My dogs love love raw kale salad with mrs. bragg's amino acids and fresh lime juice. They beg and moan until they each get several pieces of the kale with dressing.

shawna says …

My dogs love the big dog biscuits.

CKS says …

My cat, Sami, loves chicken. But, he always comes over to the table at dinner time and reaches up and pats me. He wants to see what I'm eating, "just in case." Pearl won't eat anything but cat food.

Patty says …

Our Daughter's rescue cat is unbelievable! We believe she is a Flame Point Siamese; she is insanely crazy for peaches, tomatoes, lettuce and apples; a real vegetarian! Once I put the salad bowl on the table for dinner and not 2 minutes later I turned to the dining room when I heard Luna's collar on the salad bowl; she was digging out a tomato and lettuce and making her own salad! We left a tomato on the counter after picking it from the garden and 30 minutes later found Luna munching it in the bedroom. What's next for her? Oh yes, she also loves cucumbers!! Who would have thought?

Jennifer M says …

My cats like cooked ground turkey.

Lisa Frazier says …

My dog Boss loves the dehydrated chicken jerky so much, that I have started giving it to him as a mini-meal every day. When he comes into the room I keep the bag, he sits politely and patiently just in case it is snack-time.

Trish says …

My cocker spaniel Biscotto LOVES nectarines. Anytime anyone nearby is eating one, he'll jump on their lap and sit in their face until they share. That and baby carrots!!!

Tania says …

My dog Lu, loves apples! We have been bringing her to obedience classes and tried liver treats and pieces of hot dog, but she becomes bored with the treats halfway through the class. She begs for apples at home and when we tried small pieces at doggie school...they were a hit! She will do anything for a piece of apple!
